The largest European low-cost airline Ryanair in October intends to launch its flights for four destinations flying from Kyiv and seven from Lviv.
Ryanair Chief Commercial Officer David O’Brien said at a briefing in Kyiv on March 15, that flights to Eindhoven, London, Manchester and Stockholm would be launched from Kyiv. It is planned to service 15 flights a week.
From Lviv Ryanair will fly to London, Eindhoven, Berlin, Memmingen, Krakow, Wrosclaw and Budapest.
O’Brien said that flights from Lviv to Eindhoven, London, Berlin, Budapest and Memmingen would be serviced twice a week and to Krakow and Wroclaw – three times a week. Flights from Kyiv to Eindhoven and Mancherster will be serviced three times a week, Stockholm – four times and London – five times a week. In general, the airline intends to annually carry 250,000 passengers each from Kyiv and Lviv. In Kyiv the airline will work with the Boryspil airport, while initially it was announced that the airline would work with the Kyiv international airport (Zhuliany).
“I would say that any airline operating as we do deserves certain relation to it. Maybe in the future we will fly in Boryspil and Zhuliany,” he said.
O’Brien said that Ukraine would become the 34th country in the airline’s chain.
“This year we will carry 120 million passengers and next eight years we will add 10 million passengers a year,” he said.
When asked if the airline’s planes were based in Ukraine, he said: “Not now, but this is a good issue to discuss. Another issue for the future could be cooperation with Ukraine International Airlines.” (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
